James LaBrie - Prime Cuts (2008) Retail CD
As the front-man for progressive-metal rock group Dream Theater, James LaBrie has established himself as one of the greatest contemporary rock vocalists, singing with a wonderful vocal timbre and a presence that can raise the quality of any song. Along with Dream Theater's other members, LaBrie has been involved in a number of other projects over the years, some of which have resulted in some 9 albums for the Magna Carta label. Magna Carta have now issued a compilation of some of the recordings made for their label on this "Prime Cuts" album.
"Prime Cuts" is a fair name - the album works bettermore… as a unified whole than most compilation albums, making it extremely pleasant to listen to. The music is mainly fast paced progressive rock, not too dissimilar from the spectrum covered by Dream Theater's own work; there are a couple of slower numbers but these are cleverly interspersed within the running order such that there is no loss of momentum.
There are plenty of high points to note: the opening "Afterlife", "Red Barchetta" (taken from a "tribute to Rush" album), the Arabian textured "Shores of Avalon", "His Voice" and the two songs on which LaBrie shares a vocal with others - "Vertebrates" with Trent Gardner and "This Time This Way" with Lisa Bouchelle.
This album will appeal to fans of Dream Theater who are interested in investigating LaBrie's other work.
